Q&A with Jjjki

Enchante asked:
Oh I love it! how beautiful it came out!
Jjjki answered:
This jacket looks very different now because I stamped and discharged all over it. I'll try to take a photo to show you.
Ohio Joanna asked:
Now I'll have to look for such items at my local thrift shops. I love the way the quilting thread dyed lighter than the cloth. Is this an overdye? Was it manipulated in any way before adding the dye?
Jjjki answered:
I love dying silk! Either with Procion or with Acid dye. I scrunched the jacket before dying. You can see from the lining that the original color was bright pink! The jacket really looks different now that I stencilled and discharged all over it. When I get a cord for my camera I'll post the new version.I go to my thrift store on Sundays looking for their $1 Specials!!!
